lol nice one, i knew itd be something along those lines from the title
Reminded me of this old chestnut (slightly butchered to bring it up to date):
Police in Instanbul were today searching for a gang of 15 men, believed to be from the Liverpool area, after a valuable piece of antique silverware was stolen from the Ataturk Stadium.
The silver was smuggled out of the stadium in full view of around 65,000 people following an unprovoked attack on a party of elderly visitors from Italy. The mugging took place late on Wednesday evening as the pensioners from north italy were enjoying a stroll.
A spokesman for the Instanbul police said: "This was a particularly nasty and cowardly assault. The attackers lulled the elderly gentlemen into a false sense of security by standing around doing absolutely nothing for almost an hour. Then, just as the visitors were about to get back onto their coach and go home, the vicious young thugs struck."
The gang, which includes several political refugees and illegal immigrants from Central Europe, is led by a Spanish-speaking "Fagin" who is also a master forger and pickpocket.
"This man has no scruples whatsoever. We believe he steals most of his ideas from a near neighbour in Lancashire - a man he much admires. We have interviewed this man, and although he is a former owner of the property and also guilty of a similar crime himself in Barcelona adopting similar methods some six years ago, he is above reproach."
